Explore The Newly Re-Opened Portofino And Its Stunning Natural Park

In the Italian district of Liguria lies Portofino Park, a protected location offering a breath-taking view of the Ligurian coast.

Established in 1935, the park has a long history of offering a variety of guests the chance to bask in the glorious natural beauty of this magnificent region. After the storm in October 2018, the road to Portofino was destroyed and now after significant investment has been reopened meaning visitors can easily access the park and Portofino harbour once more enjoying coastal views en-route.
